  • Tena Koe Matua. I just wanted to leave a note of respect for you and your mahi in the carving of Hotunui wharenui as I am currently working with the Museum conservation team to restore Hotunui to the state in which you and your father and whanau originally intended for it to be. I will do my mahi to the best of my ability in honour of you and your whanau. This is my pledge to you. Nga mihi aroha Matua. Moe mai ra.
